Talk about an immersive experience I’d love to be a part of… let’s hop on a plane to southern France and take a walk through Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpieces.
Carrières de Lumières, an art center in Les Baux-de-Provence, France, has launched a new music and light display called “Van Gogh: Starry Night” that immerses the visitor in the life and work of the Dutch artist. The exhibition has been designed to display Van Gogh’s masterpieces on the art center’s 50 foot high concrete walls. Covering over 75,000 square feet, the viewer walks into a visual and musical production that retraces the intense life of the tormented artist, who, during the last ten years of his life, painted more than 2,000 pieces.
Produced by Culturespaces and created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi with music by Luca Longobardi, the exhibit celebrates Van Gogh’s expressiveness, his brilliant use of color, the frenetic energy and chaos of his paintings, drawings and life. The exhibit opened in March and runs through early January, 2020. Hmmm… How much are flights to Marseilles right now?
